Tech Solutions shredder Only powers in reverse w/ green light

Tech Solutions 8000 cross shredder.

When button is in ON position: no lights, no power.

When button is in REVERSE position: green light, powers on.

Have read that it could be paper caught around the mechanical paper feed sensor. Where is the mechanical paper feed sensor and what do I need to do to troubleshoot?

Thanx

Good Luck -

Their are sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. Good chance one or more are dirty, blocked with paper shreds or just bad. Clean with compressed air and lightly moistened cotton swab.

What is the red light next to the green power light? It appears to look like a temperature light. My unit won't run.


In most cases it means the shredder is full or something is jammed. Empty the shredding container. If the machine has a "reverse" position on its switch, try running it backwards to get whatever is jamming the teeth to come back out.

No power to shredder, no reset button, reverse will not solve


The motor may have overheated and failed, especially if the shredder was operated at its rated capacity or operated continuously for long periods of time. The specs for these devices tend to be exaggerated.

Reverse works but forward will not engage.


Your problem is within the "switch" if you can only use it in reverse. Unfortunately, no parts are available for that "discontinued" model. Best answer is to buy a new shredder.
